CPD Grants

Our Continuing Professional Development Grants enable practicing conservators to take advantage of CPD opportunities by contributing towards the cost of short courses and attending conferences.

Forthcoming deadlines for CPD applications are:

January 17th 2014

March 14th 2014

May 8th 2014

and September 25th 2014

All applications must be made on the APT's application form:  


The Anna Plowden Trust's grants for CPD complement those offered by The Clothworkers' Foundation.  Those applying for our grants may also wish to investigate their eligibility for the Clothworkers' Foundation CPD grant scheme.

"I would just like to say how grateful we are ("we" being the professional conservation community here in Scotland) for the continued support of the Anna PlowdenTrust towards the sometimes onerous costs involved in keeping up our CPD as required by Icon, and of course our own wishes to be as professional as we can manage."
